#37. How to get rich and never pay a dollar in taxes.
Show Notes

In this episode, Aaron and Trishul discuss all the different types of taxes in the United States and their impact on income inequality. They discuss regressive consumption taxes, progressive income taxes, and how taxes are lower for businesses and the wealthy. They also examine the difference between marginal tax rates and effective tax rates. Do you know all the ways that corporations and their owners avoid paying taxes? Maybe our society has collectively decided that this is acceptable? Or perhaps its the maximum marginal brackets on corporations and individuals that affect public perception, when it is, in fact, our tax system that hinders income earners while helping the wealthy.
